This 24-hour programmable lighting timer automatically turns your aquarium lamps on and off for you, providing a natural day and night cycle for your fish. It comes with an LED indicator light and one outlet, and can be set to timer or constant power modes on demand with just the flip of a switch. The grounded 3-prong receptacle is also perfectly safe to use for home aquariums. Setting it up is easy―just move the dial to your desired times in the morning and night, and let your fish enjoy a light to dark cycle that’s close to their natural environment.

The timer seems to be a pretty basic timer, but for twice the amount (which still really isn't much). My biggest issue is how bulky it is. It takes up so much space on the outlet it pretty much renders the second plug useless. I'm unable to plug another 3 prong appliance below this. I had to go get a much smaller timer and have no use for this one.
Excellent timer once you get it set up.

This timer is well made, works very well, and lasts longer than others I've tried. I've been using these for quite a few years. The only negative is the instructions which are written for a 24 hour timer (numbers 1 through 24), not an A.M./P.M. which, along with the black and white bands, makes set up a bit tricky.

For the low price I didn't expect much but this is a really nice, reliable timer. I bought one and am ordering 2 more for my other tanks. I would highly recommend this timer, just be sure that it is compatible with your light power source and plug it directly into the wall outlet, not a power strip! Thanks Chewy for making this affordable!
Works Great, but No Instuctions Provided

This item is very useful. It works just the same as a reptile timer. The only issue is that mine did not come with instructions on operating it. Luckily there's a video on YouTube for it! Definitely recommend!

Fast shipping and great product. My Betta Fineas is very happy with his regular day/night schedule.
